Cadent are installing locking cooker valves for vulnerable householders

Cadent can fit a lockable safety device (locking cooker valve) to the pipework of a gas cooker or hob, this service is free of charge and will be installed by a Cadent engineer.  This simple safety device will help a person living in a vulnerable situation retain their independence, and provide reassurance to family, friends and carers.  The valve can easily be turned off and on and locked by the carer, enabling the person they care for to continue to use their own gas cooker safely.  When the valve is locked, the gas supply is isolated which means if the cooker is unintentionally turned on or left on, there is no risk to gas escaping.
